Melasma

Treating Melasma

Seldom talked about but one of the most pervasive skin problems, melasma shows itself as telltale brown and gray patches on your face across the cheeks, bridge of the nose and forehead. Often referred to as the ‘pregnancy mask’, melasma is most common among women between the ages of 20 and 50 and especially pregnant women as it’s believed to be triggered by hormones. While there’s no cure, treating melasma with advanced aesthetic treatments (overseen by a professional!) and prescription skincare can help fade discoloration and leave your skin looking more even-toned and luminous.

Treating Melasma

Because melasma commonly presents during pregnancy, any skincare or treatments will need to be carefully supervised by a physician. But that doesn’t mean we can’t do aesthetic procedures that will help fade the lingering dark spots once the time is right! The best treatment options for melasma include a combination of custom chemical peels that target pigmentation paired with complementary skincare that focuses on ‘brightening’ the skin with ingredients such as hydroquinone and kojic acid. Some of our patients love the effect of gentle laser rejuvenation with the Clear + Brilliant® which leaves skin looking lit from within.

Reviews

Julie Russak is by far the best dermatologist I have ever visited. First off, her office is impeccable and looks like a museum. The front desk staff are always friendly and so are the medical assistants. Julie always gets the job done right and not once has she pressured me to spend any more money than I need to or suggest other procedures. If I ask her she’s very honest and professional.
